    Packet data, turned off. ?

    Hi, I am pretty new to Android, so please be gentle. I am used to Symbian via nokia and a little iOS.
    There is an option in wireless I seemed to have stumbled on, at the moment it seems to be switched off? If I go to switch it on, I get a warning re additional charges?? Please explain the benefit of having this option turned on? Or am I a blithering idiot? I dont seem to be missing any service? Or am I?
    I have GS 2 on Vodafone in the UK.

    Packet Data is your data connection via your network provider, allows you to access the internet and send e-mails. The only other way is to use Wifi.

    Edit: You get charges warning as you may not have 'unlimited data' on your contract and you may exceed the data usage stated in your contract thus incurring costs. It's just a warning, 3 hours internet viewing a day would be fine on a 500mb data package.

    Not sure, depends on what mail/data/messages you are getting. Are the messages text messages? or are the Internet Relay Messages/Instant Messanger?

    What data are you receiving?
